Hello. My name is Pat Katepoo and I’m a current member of AND and DBC and a former RDN, with 20+ years in the field.
I’ve also been advising career women on how to negotiate flexible work arrangements, longer maternity leaves, and higher salaries, right here at WorkOptions.com, online since 1997.
The majority of my pay raise clients—and success stories—are RDNs. Why? Because I know the profession, the people, and the untapped pay raise potential that’s costing you thousands of dollars a year. Let’s turn it around for you and the profession. Get started with the resources below.
